In 2010 we earned £21.4 million in research grants for the 825 clinical trials we led, bringing benefits to thousands of our patients.

Our heart centre at Glenfield Hospital continues to lead the way in developing new and innovative research and techniques, such as surgery with a Robotic Arm, TAVI (Trans-Catheter Aortic Valve Insertion) and the use of the suture less valve in heart surgery. We also have one of the best vascular services nationally, with more patients surviving longer after following an aneurysm repair (to fix a life threatening bulge in a blood vessel).

It is also the birthplace of Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) in the UK.

Leicester Royal Infirmary

Leicester Royal Infirmary is close to Leicester city centre and has more than 1000 beds. It is one of three hospitals that are run by University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, which also includes Leicester Royal Infirmary and Leicester General Hospital.

The trust, known as Leicester Hospitals, was rated excellent for its quality of services by the Healthcare Commission in the 2007/08 Annual Health Check and is one of only four hospital (acute) trusts nationally to receive an excellent rating three years in a row.

Leicester Hospitals provide a clean and safe environment for patients which meets the Annual Health Check infection control standards. During an unannounced visit in June 2009, the Care Quality Commission found no areas of concern and reported that the rates of MRSA and C Diff (Clostridium difficile) infection at Leicester Hospitals are "below the average."

Cancer services within the Royal Infirmary are based at the purpose-built Osborne Centre, which is undergoing a multi-million pound improvement programme to provide more state-of-the-art equipment which will improve care for patients. The centre is part of the National Cancer Network.

There is significant specialist support available through the hospital's palliative care service and their Cancer Information Centre. The Centre provides a drop-in service where patient information officers help patients and carers to find the information they need and put them in touch with appropriate services. The Centre has a wide range of up-to-date information leaflets, books, DVDs and audio tapes, some of which are suitable for people with learning disabilities, sight problems and whose first language is not English.

Mr David M Lloyd, a consultant surgeon at the Infirmary has developed a pioneering technique using microwaves to destroy liver tumours. He has treated more than 100 patients in the UK and other patients are now being treated internationally. Because of the pioneering research done at the University Hospitals Leicester, the microwave generator is being used as far afield as Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia. In particular, the microwave technology has been embraced by many of the top cancer hospitals in the USA.

The importance of this application of microwave technology is immense, as Mr Lloyd explains: "The technique will have a significant effect on liver cancers, because we are operating on people who have been declared inoperable."

The diabetes care service at the Royal Infirmary is provided in partnership with GPs. Patients are screened by their doctor and referrals made to specialist diabetes centres who provide a comprehensive service for patients in their dedicated clinics. The DESMOND programme (Diabetes Education and Self Management for Ongoing and Newly Diagnosed) has its national centre at Leicester Royal Infirmary, where staff work to ensure that people with type 2 diabetes nationwide can access the same quality of vital education from diagnosis, no matter where they are in the country.

Mobile phones are helping youngsters with diabetes maintain good health, in the first project of its kind. The new telemedicine programme allows parents and patients with type 1 diabetes to use their mobile phone to record blood sugar levels. These levels can be monitored by the patient to aid self management, as well as clinicians, via a secure website to allow them to intervene if required. The programme has focused on diabetic children, as this group - particularly adolescents - can find it difficult to control their diabetes.

Paediatric consultant James Greening said "the overall aim of the project is to introduce good self management habits which will last through life and help reduce the risk of developing complications, such as circulatory disease and blindness."

The hospital also hosts the main accident & emergency service in Leicester 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is one of the country's busiest emergency departments and includes a separate 24-hour emergency area for children, as well as a minor injuries unit for treating injuries such as cuts, bruises and sprains and an out-of-hours GP Service.

Last year, over 150,000 people visited the emergency department (ED) at the Royal Infirmary. Staff in the ED often treat as many as 500 patients in a single day. Despite this Department of Health figures from 2008 show that the hospital has seen 98 per cent of patients who come to casualty within the Government target of four hours.

Consultant Dr Colin Read who runs the emergency department asks that people stop and think if something is really an emergency before coming into hospital. Dr Read said "Of course we are here for real emergencies. If you've got severe pain, or feel very unwell, then we're the best place, but otherwise it's often your GP who can best help you."
